The government has initiated the process to gift a pair of one-horned rhinoceros to China as promised to the northern neighbor.

Chinese government had requested for two pairs of one horned rhinos with Agni Sapkota, the minister for Forest and Soil Conservation (MoFSC), during his visit to China in January.

Minister Sapkota, after taking consent with Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, had directed concerned agencies to make necessary preparations to send rhinos to China. “We have forwarded the related file to the MoFSC after completing all the procedures,” Kishor Mehata, spokesperson of the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC), said. He informed that the DNPWC has also included the suggestions from the Natural History Museum (NHM), which is mandatory while gifting critically endangered species to another nation. Mehata, however, said the transfer would take place only after a cabinet meeting formally endorses the proposal.

He said that there are no legal hurdles to gifting endangered animals to other countries once the cabinet decides to do so. The government has already gifted the endangered mammals to several friendly nations including to Germany and Austria. The rhinos to be gifted to China would be selected from Chitwan National Park, which is currently home to over 600 rhinoceros. The latest census carried out on 2015 shows that there are 645 rhinoceros in Nepal.
